Unicorn Dance

On the more traditional side, a few of the more skilled students are taught the unicorn dance, found only among the Hak Gar dialect people in China, in whose region this style of Kung Fu was founded. It is by tradition totally different to the lion dance.

The lion, an aggressive animal, is not allowed to perform its dance within the house as the Chinese consider it to be unfriendly.

The Unicorn, a lucky animal in the eyes of the Chinese community, is welcomed into their homes, and is said to bring the occupier good luck and fortune for the future.

The Unicorn Dance is often performed in the New Year and during special events and celebrations.
